Warming Shelters Open in Cobb
Published January 21, 2020
Predicted low temperatures well into the 20s tonight has prompted MUST Ministries to again open their warming shelters. MUST opens the warming shelter when predicted low temperatures are colder than 35 degrees.
Elizabeth Inn: 55 Elizabeth Church Road, Marietta
The Extension (for men): 1507 Church Street Extension NE, Marietta
Our warming shelter does not turn anyone away - after 5 or at any other time. If a woman or child arrives at 5 p.m., or midnight, or at any other time - we make sure they are welcomed in out of the elements and shown hospitality by providing warm hearts, warm coffee/drinks, and food as well as shelter. We partner with the Extension to provide shelter to men overnight during cold weather. This is for security.
Our winter warming shelter opens at 8 p.m. when the temperature is 35 degrees or below - to all women and children. And, we turn no-one away (regardless of when they arrive) and work to accommodate everyone so that no one is ever out in the cold.
For anyone arriving ahead of the 8 p.m. opening - we invite them to have dinner at our Loaves and Fishes kitchen and wait inside to stay warm until the kitchen closes. The kitchen is converted into the overnight warming shelter after dinner is served.
